continued Brenda Valentine stressed that the success of the market will depend heavily upon the patronage of the community. As the market grows, many of the vendors will be coming some distances to participate in this community event. She and the other steering committee members called for an understanding on the part of the community of the economics of being a vendor coming long distances to supply a fresh resource at a convenient location in the town.
